List of Canadian Armed Forces assisted film and TV

Spy Culture

Obtained via FOIA by a listener to ClandesTime, this is a list of all the films and TV shows that the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) have participated in the production of, or at least all the ones they saw fit to admit to being involved in.  It was quite a lengthy FOIA struggle that led to the release of this document, so credit to the listener for that, and the released document is quite heavily redacted.

Nonetheless, it shows a comfortable, continuous relationship between CAF and Hollywood, and with TV producers in the US and elsewhere – the BBC turns up a number of times.  Indeed, documentaries/reality TV make up a significant proportion of the entries in the list.  The entertainment movies are interesting because they include the most recent Superman film (Man of Steel) and White House Down, one of a pair of movies from 2013 depicting an assault on the White House in Washington DC.  The most amusing entry on the list is The Colony – an apocalyptic climate change cannibalism thriller that I have not seen but which sounds completely dreadful.

UpdatedL June 18, 2014 10:00am

Around 7,000 Ontarians are still without power after a tornado and massive storms hit southern parts of the province Tuesday evening.

A tornado with winds approaching 175 km/h ripped roofs off houses, flipped vehicles with ease and scattered debris across roads in the small town of Angus.

Environment Canada confirmed that the twister touched down around 5:20 p.m. and tracked east for 15 minutes, from Angus to the Mapleview Dr. area in Barrie.

Only about 52 per cent of electorate cast ballots in Ontario election

Voter turnout in Ontario’s election ticked up for the first time in almost 25 years, but the province still has one of the lowest turnouts in Canada.

Elections Ontario is estimating 52 per cent of eligible voters cast ballots in Thursday’s election, though final results won’t be published until June 18. The highest turnout was in Ottawa-Orleans with 61 per cent heading to the polls while the lowest turnout was in Mississauga-Brampton South, where just 42 per cent of eligible voters cast ballots.

“The reason why turnout is low in any given election is the same across all elections, which is that there is an increasing number of people who don’t feel like they have a duty to vote,” said Peter Loewen, assistant professor of political science at the University of Toronto at Mississauga, who said voter turnout is decreasing across Canada, particularly among young people.

Ontario’s voter participation is especially low when compared with the rest of the country.

While B.C., Alberta and Manitoba all had similar turnouts – a little more than half the eligible pool of voters – in their most recent elections, the rest of the provinces drew more impressive participation. Saskatchewan had 66 per cent of voters turn out in 2011, Quebec’s election attracted 71 per cent of voters this year and Prince Edward Island topped the list with a hefty 77-per-cent turnout to re-elect Liberal Premier Robert Ghiz in 2011.

Mr. Loewen said part of the difference boils down to size: In a small province such as PEI, the provincial government’s decisions have a more direct impact. Who you vote for could determine whether you have a job next year, he said.

List of Bilderberg Group Participants from Canada 2014

by Frankie Gotz
Canadian Awareness Network
May 28, 2014

The meeting of the Bilderberg Group will take place in the Kingdom of Denmark located in the EU starting May 29th and ends on June 1st.  Bilderberg Group or Bilderberg conference is an unofficial annual “invitation-only” conference of around 130 guests from all around the world from people of influence in the fields of business, media, energy, banking , politics and even royalty. The meetings are all held behind closed doors.

The decisions made at these meetings are not decisions that benefit the general public.  The Bilderberg Group promotes one world government.  Since the constant exposure of the Bilderberg Group by real journalists over the years, they have been forced to unveil themselves to the public by publishing their very own website which was created a few years ago, which allows people to see who attends and what the topics of discussion are.  But still, protesters and alternative media still catch attendees that are not listed on website and other sinister agendas (topics of discussion) are leaked that are not portrayed on their website as well.

On May 26th the Bilderberg Group released a list of participants that will be attending the conference in Denmark this Thursday.  All together this year there are 136 attendees from 11 different countries in total.  Out of the 136 biggest corporate elitists only 6 are from Canada.

VIDEO — Canada’s Aboriginal Policy Slammed in UN Report – PRESS TV

Globalization1492
May 13, 2014

LINK: http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2014/05/…

A UN official has warned that Canada is facing a crisis over the conditions of its aboriginal population, “grappling with a housing crisis” as well as “poor education and healthcare.”

James Anaya, UN Special Rapporteur on the rights of the indigenous peoples, made the warning on Monday, as he published a report on the situation of Canada’s First Nations.

Anaya called on the administration of Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper to take “urgent action” to address the housing crisis for the indigenous population and to provide “sufficient funding” for services, including education, health and child welfare.

Anaya also commented on the situation of aboriginal women and girls, saying they “remain vulnerable to abuse” and called for a nationwide inquiry into the disappearance and murder of nearly 1,200 native women over the past three decades.

The Harper administration has repeatedly refused to launch a national inquiry.

Latest figures by Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) showed that some 1,186 incidents have been recorded of aboriginal homicides and unresolved investigations into incidents of missing women.

The UN official said there are “high levels of distrust” toward the Canadian government among the native population, adding the relationship between the two is even more strained than a decade ago.

Jean Crowder, the official opposition critic for aboriginal affairs with the New Democratic Party, has blamed the government for not taking more action regarding the issue.

“Study after study, report after report find that investments are needed to improve the quality of life for indigenous peoples in Canada, especially in housing, child welfare and education, yet this government continues to let funding trickle out,” Crowder stated.

According to a 2011 census, Canada has 1.4 million Aboriginals, which is nearly 4.3 percent of its overall population.


VIDEO — Some of John McCain’s Friends: US-Supported Insurgents Humiliate Syrian Old Man in Aleppo

Global Research TV
May 11, 2014

In March 2013 the US-supported insurgent group known as the so-called “Free Syrian Army” abducted the famous “Yellow Man of Aleppo.” The Yellow Man of Aleppo, whose real name is Abu Zakhour, is an old man who is a local celebrity.

When a Syrian journalist asked him, in a 2010 interview, why he wears yellow all the time, the old man responded that he “chose yellow because it’s a color that gives people happiness and joy” whenever they see it. “People loved me from the beginning and I want to repay them that love” by bringing joy into their lives by wearing yellow, he explained. In 2013, his desires to bring joy were met by punishment, physical abuse, verbal abuse and public humiliation when US-supported fighters entered Aleppo.

After abducting Abu Zakhour the insurgent fighters uploaded a video of themselves insulting and tormenting the old man online before he was taken away in their car. The FSA thugs intimidate and force the old man from Aleppo to pretend he supports them and the US-supported insurgency in Syria, to curse President Bashar Al-Assad, and to even bark like a dog and to smile while they slap and hit him multiple times.

These are the criminals that John McCain and the US, UK, French, Turkish, Qatari, Saudi, German, and Canadian government support and want in power.

Canada’s First Medical Marijuana Vending Machine Opened in B.C.

Canadian Awareness Network
May 10, 2014

Pic Courtesy news.nationalpost.com

National Post

VANCOUVER — Just five weeks after Ottawa outlawed B.C.’s cottage industry of cannabis dispensaries, one of them has just opened Canada’s first marijuana vending machine.

“Half an ounce for $50, which is unthinkable in the city,” said local hip hop artist Ray Gill, speaking Monday in a YouTube video promoting the new machine. “It’s like they’re just giving it away!”

The machine is operated by the B.C. Pain Society, a recently opened medical marijuana dispensary located a few blocks from the heart of Vancouver’s hip Commercial Drive district.

Society director Chuck Varabioff worked in vending machines before he went into medical marijuana, so the machine was a natural marriage, he said.

“It’s safe, it’s secure and your product does not get contaminated,” said Mr. Varabioff.

“Most other dispensaries in town, you don’t know what that product is getting contaminated with — which is a big issue for sick people.”

Mr. Varabioff’s creation, decorated in a pot leaf motif, contains a cross-section of popular pot strains, from Cotton Candy to Lemon Haze to MK Ultra.

For $20 the customer gets a “sealed, tamper-proof” bag containing an eighth of an ounce (enough for about half a dozen joints). And, as indicated in the video by Mr. Gill, half-ounce bags go for $50.

Two re-purposed gumball machines also offer smaller quantities of marijuana at $4 and $6 increments.

The machines, like the various marijuana products offered at the Society’s nearby retail counter, are only open to licensed medical marijuana users.

A waist-high fence separates the machines from the location’s public area, and to enter the fenced-off zone customers must flash a card confirming that they have received a doctor’s prescription for the drug.

Within the space of 20 minutes on a Wednesday afternoon, three customers came in to use the new machine: A woman who appeared to be in her early twenties, a woman with a slight limp and an older man in a dress shirt.

“It’s a convenience thing for regular customers to come in and say ‘I know what I want, I can avoid the lineup, come right up to the machine, put my $20 in, grab my baggie and go; bada bing, bada boom, done,’” said Justin Johnson, a licensed medical marijuana user who uses the drug to treat lower back pain.

Another perk: the B.C. Pain Society does not keep tabs on how much product its customers are buying.

“We’re not interested in what they’re buying; that’s up to them,” said a clerk. “Whereas Health Canada growers, they keep track.”

The B.C. Pain Society does not disclose the exact source of its marijuana, other than to say that it comes from the Vancouver area, is inspected in-house and does not come from drug traffickers.

“All of our product is sourced from confidential sources,” said Mr. Varabioff.  “That’s pretty much all I can say about that.”

According to Health Canada, the B.C. Pain Society’s whole setup is illegal. As per legislation that came into force on April 1, Canada’s only source for legal medical marijuana is a small network of large-scale, for-profit growers certified by the health agency.

But the B.C. Pain Society, like all of the other dispensaries in the Vancouver area, keeps its doors open thanks to what many proprietors openly call a “legal gray area.”

Tristin Hopper/National Post

The Vancouver Police’s official stance is that while medical marijuana dispensaries are indeed illegal, raiding them is far from its top priority.

In a March press release, the Vancouver Police Drug Unit said it would continue to focus on targeting “violent gang members” and other operations that pose a “danger to the public.”

“For the most part, medical marijuana dispensaries operating today in Vancouver do not meet these criteria,” it said, noting that they were just as illegal before the rule change.

The B.C. Pain Society vending machine is only the latest unorthodox vending machine to show up in Vancouver.

Last October, a Waves coffee shop became the site of the world’s first bitcoin ATM. A few months later, it emerged that a crack pipe vending machine had been operating at a harm reduction facility run by the Portland Hotel Society, a Downtown Eastside non-profit since roiled by spending scandals.

And while the B.C. Pain Society’s marijuana vending machine is a Canadian first, it narrowly lost the global title to Colorado, a state that legalized recreational marijuana in 2012.

First Canadian Fired For Refusing Vaccine

by Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
Apr 30, 2014

While Ukraine, the NBA, and Cliven Bundy dominated the headlines in North America, the Canadian press reported on a major milestone that was quietly reached – the first firing of a Canadian healthcare worker for refusing a vaccine, and the public shaming effort that comes with the “option” of wearing a face mask which took place in December.

Although the few reports surrounding the firing were published only days ago, the Boundary Hospital employee from British Columbia, Canada, Arnold Hoekstra, was fired in December of 2013. His case was only announced by the Health Ministry on Wednesday in order to “wrap up the flu season.”

Hoekstra, who is 49, held a permanent part-time position at the hospital as an adult day program worker. However, when he was instructed to submit to a flu vaccination, he refused to be injected with the toxic cocktail of chemicals and viruses that have been demonstrated to cause a number of adverse health effects in both children and adults. Short of agreeing to be injected with a vaccine that has been shown to be ineffective at preventing the flu (at best), Hoekstra’s only other option was to wear a face mask at all times while at work.

In an interview with the Vancouver Sun, Hoekstra stated “I don’t believe you should do things just because somebody tells you. We should be able to think for ourselves, we should be able to make those decisions. I’ve worked in health care since the early ’80s. You’d think we should be a little bit more enlightened but we’re not.”

According to the Vancouver Sun, Hoekstra stated that he and his wife have seven children and that he would rather die than force them to be vaccinated.

Hoekstra, like many others who have researched vaccinations, is not convinced that the injections provide any health benefits. He stated, “Vaccines in general, I believe, are a total lie and we’ve been sold this lie for years. I could have saved my job, I could have said yeah I’ll do it but I just did not believe.”

Hoekstra had previously went public with his story to the Grand Forks Gazette, his local newspaper. However, larger coverage of the issue did not take place until recently after Chief Provincial Health Officer Perry Kendall mentioned Hoekstra’s termination in his end-of-year press conference.

The Health Ministry further stated that 1.4 million British Columbians had been vaccinated against the flu this season and Kendall stated that, within the next five years, he hopes to see “advances toward a universal flu vaccination that would help reduce the guesswork in identifying the coming year’s strain of influenza.”

As Rob Shaw wrote for The Province,

The government said Wednesday that 80 per cent of health care workers ultimately did get vaccinated, which was a 10-per-cent increase from the previous flu season.

The remaining workers chose to wear masks, but Hoekstra said he rejected that option because wearing a mask all day makes him feel like he’s suffocating.

Hoekstra, for his part, does not regret his decision. Indeed, he stated as much in an interview with this writer. “I do not regret my decision,” he said. “I regret that the powers that be made this awful choice.”

Ultimately, the firing of Hoekstra is just another example of how vaccine dogma has taken an even stronger hold in the medical industry and the community at large. It also speaks volumes to the level of control private corporations and governments now have over the private life and personal health decisions of individual citizens and employees.

For those who may be unaware, the last several months have seen a volley of mainstream media propaganda promoting vaccines and demonizing anyone who refuses to accept the faith-based science that support them. A clear propaganda effort has been launched to make vaccination trendy and refusal to vaccinate a social behavior that is frowned upon. Already, those individuals addicted to hip media outlets are using peer pressure to bully non-vaccinators into accepted the toxic shots out of fear of ostracism more so than the disease they allegedly prevent.

Hoekstra seems to recognize the coming confrontation between vaccinators and non-vaccinators as being foretold by the recent number of articles and propaganda pieces being produced by mainstream media outlets. He states,

I believe the screws will continue to tighten until the whole nation is on board. They have said in the media that they want the percentage of health care workers taking the shot to go much higher than 80 percent. As far as people losing their jobs, well, I hate to say it but most people tend to do what they’re told, regardless of the fact that they are putting their health at risk. Many I talked to disagreed with the policy but, because of fear of discipline and losing their jobs, they just complied. [Please note that my full interview with Arnold Hoekstra will be released very soon]

Social approval and disapproval is often used to enforce a number of tragic policies by using the force of the people who are further enslaved by them. The recent propaganda push by the pharmaceutical companies and their media mouthpieces is simply the gearing up for a major battle in the future that will inevitably lead to the universal mandate of vaccination applicable to all people with no exemptions.

For now, Arnold Hoekstra stands as one of the first victims of this quiet war.

Is The Harper Government “Sabotaging” Health Care?

by Terry Wilson
Canadian Awareness Network
Apr 24, 2014

In recent weeks I have seen articles and memes floating around on social media stating that the Harper government is attempting to sabotage or destroy the publicly funded Canadian health care system.

Leadnow.ca has a petition with nearly 50,000 signatures titled: Tell Prime Minister Harper: Don’t Sabotage Our Public Health Care. The petition states:

“Today, the Harper Conservatives had their first chance to make major changes to Canada’s health care since getting a majority government, and they launched a brutal sneak attack. They just sabotaged the Health Accord that protects equal care for all Canadians, and they’re cutting your public health funding by $36 billion over the next 10 years.1 2 It’s the start of Harper’s long-term plan to destroy our public health care system, and we have to stop it. The Canada Health Accord is the deal between the federal government and the provinces that ensures proper funding, equal access, and high standards for the health care we all rely on.3 Prime Minister Harper has always wanted to replace public care with an American-style for-profit system. He made his career by leading the National Citizen’s Coalition, an organization founded by a wealthy insurance broker determined to destroy Canada’s medicare.4 But here’s the thing – he knows that 94% of Canadians, including most conservatives, support national public health care.5 That’s why he’s trying to sabotage the system quietly by cutting $36 billion over 10 years and breaking the pact that all Canadians should get equal care, no matter what province you live in.”
Continue Reading

Beyond the idea that the people at leadnow.ca seem to some how have a “inside scoop” on what Harper’s long term plans are. I decided to do a little fact checking on this.

Lets average out the $36 billion cut in funding over 10 years to a reduction of $3.6 billion each year and lets put that into perspective.

A national report estimates that $211 billion was spent on health care in Canada for the year of 2013. The $3.6 billion reduction represents around a 1% cut each year. Sounds pretty devastating doesn’t it?

Note: Leadnow.ca is strongly connected to organizations such as Tides Canada and Openmedia.ca

Stating that a budget cut of 1% a year for the next decade is “sabotage” or the beginning of a long term plan (with no background information) is quite a stretch.

I also came across this graphic that was posted on the boycott sun news Facebook page.
10177372_664067640333680_9028488377822638326_n

Now I do not think that I have ever agreed with Stephen Harper on anything until now. Opening up a government monopoly to other groups or companies is not a bad thing. It creates competition, drives down prices, and raises quality.

If people are given a choice between private and public health care, would we see the outrageous wait times? The poor quality of service? etc. No, because they would loose customers.

It is really amazing to watch Canadian people fight so hard to keep a medical system that is forced onto them under threat of violence (watch what happens when you decide you no longer want to take part in it or pay for it), has disgusting service, and limits you on making your own treatment decisions.


Unprecedented amount of ice still present at Great Lakes, USA/Canada

The Watchers
Apr 25, 2014

Although North America is now a full month into astronomical spring, the Great Lakes are still almost half frozen. As of April 22, 2014, the Great Lakes were 33.9 percent ice covered. Some scientists say that the amount of ice that still remains could have a big impact on the environment in the months and years ahead.

  • Lake Superior is the world’s largest freshwater lake by area (82,100 square kilometers or 31,700 square miles) and the third largest by volume. The waters average 147 meters (483 feet) in depth, and the basin is believed to hold about 10 percent of the world’s liquid fresh water.
  • Lake Superior had 3.6 percent ice cover on April 20, 2013; in 2012, ice was completely gone by April 12.
  • In the last winter that ice cover grew so thick on Lake Superior (2009), it reached 93.7 percent on March 2 but was down to 6.7 percent by April 21.

 

In the early afternoon on April 20, 2014, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite captured this natural-color image of Lake Superior, which straddles the United States – Canada border. At the time Aqua passed over, the lake was 63.5 percent ice covered, according to the NOAA Great Lakes Environmental Research Lab (GLERL). Averaged across Lake Superior, ice was 22.6 centimeters (8.9 inches) thick; it was as much as twice that thickness in some locations.

Don’t smoke the Purple Kush: medical marijuana recalled

A medical marijuana production facility in British Columbia is warning users not to smoke their Purple Kush after Health Canada found “issues with the company’s production practices,” which prompted a voluntary recall of the batch.

Greenleaf Medicinals is telling clients to immediately stop using a batch of Purple Kush brand marijuana labelled “PK-10-20-13.”

“It’s not a danger to those people using the product, but they are being asked to discontinue use,” Health Canada Spokesperson Erika-Kirsten Easton told the Toronto Star.

She wouldn’t elaborate on what “production practices” Health Canada had issues with, but the company is now working other licensed producers to find another supply of marijuana for those who are impacted by the recall.

Legal Canadian medical marijuana producer has shipment seized by mounties

Toke of the Town
Apr 7, 2014

canada-flag.image-large.gifDespite having approval from Health Canada, Tweed Marijuana says a shipment of herb grown by private B.C. growers previously licensed to grow cannabis was seized by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police over the weekend.

All of this after Tweed invited the mounties to examine the shipment. Only in Canada are people nice enough to invite the police over to check out their quasi-legal operations.

“We felt everything was done absolutely correctly,” Tweed chairman Bruce Linton told the National Post. “When you call police to say, ‘Come look at this,’ you believe you have everything in order.”

Tweed made headlines late last week as the first publically traded pot company in Canada. The group is one of the dozen that are legally allowed to produce and distribute cannabis under new government laws. The cannabis they were purchasing was produced under the old laws, which allowed for a caregiver-patient system similar to many U.S. states.

For their part, the RMCP isn’t saying anything. It’s their policy to not comment on ongoing investigations. Though, really, there’s not much to investigate. Again, this is Canada and everyone is being really nice and up-front about everything.

Growers licensed under the old system were able to sell off “starting materials” like clones, seeds and immature plants to the new, big, government-licensed grows.

Apparently, Tweed saw such a demand for products, however, that they asked the Health Department for a waiver to purchase actual bud. They got it, and thought everything was okay. Until last Monday, that is.

Linton says they had the police check out the shipment in part to be transparent, but also in part to protect the goods.

Part of the confusion comes from the ever-changing rules. Lawsuits have been filed in part to keep home cultivation in place, and there have been several changed deadlines for transferring materials.
